A bustly square of outside restaurants, which in the evenings is drowned out with local singers and dancers. The food is always excellent and is Spanish cuisine of every type and tail. You can even try Caracoles (Snails) in a pungent home-made tomato sauce. Highly recommended. The heart of Puerto!

Nothing to dislike here. Worth wandering around at any time but comes into its own in the evening when there are musicians and often impromptu dancing by both locals and tourists

It is just the middle of the center. A lot of restaurants and stuff around it. Just a place to walk around.

A nice square with lots of restaurants, bars, and shops. We ate lunch here on two occasions and stopped another time to have drinks. A good area to relax and enjoy the Puerto de la Cruz ambience.

One of the very few places where you can enjoy a drink ( either alcohol or non alcoholic ) and just watch the world pass you by.

A 15 min walk from the sea front, just next to the fishing marina, a nice relaxed place to sit in a bar and have lunch and watch the world pass by. Recommend the Columbus for a good lunch.

A mixture of restauarants and small bars, with many local people chatting. A short walk from here to the main town and shopping.

I love a good spanish plaza but I can't say I like it to be filled with a selection of tribute artists booming out at each bar (at least they were singing in tune). It is certainly very lively though.
